Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Pedestrian accidents in Florida can cause serious and long-term complications for many victims. According to recent statistics, about 75% of all Florida pedestrian accidents require a trip to the emergency room while about 50% will require extended hospitalization and more extensive medical care. Following a pedestrian accident, it is common to need months of medical treatment just to help your injuries heal and to rehabilitate yourself to regain physical strength and the capabilities that you had before the crash occurs.
Many Florida pedestrian accidents occur due to the fault of other drivers. Motorists who fail to yield at crosswalks and intersections, and those that are speeding or distracted by other things, such as their cell phones, are often the cause of pedestrian crashes in our state. These accidents can leave innocent victims suffering from painful injuries and an uncertain future. Fortunately, there could be help available if you have been injured in a pedestrian accident in Florida.
